The Golden Birds

Don't you just love the birds an image from Priscilla Styles, CDAC.  I have painted them with Yasutomo metalic watercolors.  The cage is a die cut from Marianne design.  The DP is from K&Company.  White cardstock was put in a cuttlebug folder and through my Wizard. A layer of gold cardstock on a white card. The center cutout was made using Spellbinders Scalloped Circle.

Tomorrow is card day at my house, so I have been busy making a casserol , salad, and a cake for our lunch.
There will be eight of us and we are celebrating two birthdays.  The above card will be for one of them.
  I was suppose to golf early this morning, but too wet and cold.  It turned out to be a nice day, but rained later in the afternoon.  We were visiting friends in the afternoon and did manage to sit out on their back deck for about an hour before it rained.  After cards tomorrow we are going to my daughters and staying overnight.  We will help her pack some of the smaller things, she will be moving on Saturday, we will be home then, the younger ones can help with the heavy things.

Sweet Peas

Sweet Peas a very pretty digi from Priscilla Styles CDAC which I  have chosen to enter into the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC100.    My card is almost a duplicate of the Fancy sketch.  I have colored the digi with copics.  I used a cuttlebug folder for the lavender background.  The turquoise DP is Dizzy Dots from Lasting Impressions.  The sentiment is a sticker colored with copics.  The ribbon from Michaels. A Fun   card to make. A great image for spring.

Golden Flower

This card is for the CDAC Midnight Madness Challenge. The sketch challenge was fairly easy to follow this week, though I think this one falls into the plain category. I will be giving this card to one of my fellow card players, her bithday is at the end of the month.  The Flower stamp is from Penny Black and the Butterfly stamp is from Stamp Barn. I colored the stamp with markers.  Brushed a small amount of yellow and orange Distress Ink around the flower.  The navy background paper is from Graphic 45.

Have been having computer problems so have not been posting this past week.  I had to get a new camera and the program would not load to my computer - so for the present time am working on my husbands.  Will be away for a few days, so hopefully I can do some catching up when we get back.
